Oconomowoc Cemetery

Oconomowoc Township
Waukesha County Wisconsin Genealogy

Location

The Oconomowoc Cemetery was located along Walnut Street between Wisconsin Ave. and the Norwegian Bridge in Sec. 33 in what is now a residential and commercial area of Oconomowoc City. It was west of the present location of LaBelle Cemetery on the southern end of Fowler Lake, Oconomowoc Township.

History

The cemetery was the first cemetery established May 15, 1851 (date may be wrong) by the Oconomowoc Cemetery Association. Burials were made there until 1864, when it was decided that a larger area would be required for the cemetery. The new site was called LaBelle Cemetery. All the owners of lots in Oconomowoc Cemetery were given lots in LaBelle in exchange and the bodies were relocated at LaBelle. The land was sold in January, 1865, for $1,325 to Messrs. Thompson, Metcalf, Fowler, and Hall and was afterwards platted as Hall's Addition.
